English Abstract

Highways are both major parts of the transportation infrastructure in Jordan and play a significant role in the development of the local economy and community.

After Extensive study in this field, many problems were found.

Initial from shortage in the documentation, weakness in the database and usage, the system was not sufficiently and not flexible to deal with defects.

Finally, the system was not effectively helping decision maker in provide right decision.

The main aim of this research is to develop a Pavement Maintenance Management System (PMMS), which provides a systematic process for maintaining, upgrading and operating the pavements and tools to facilitate a more flexible decision-making approach to meet the expectations of highway users.

The system developed has four major components: data collection, analysis, maintenance plan, and implementation.

In addition, it is based on the direct integration of Micro PAVER pavement software and ArcGIS mapping software.

A case study of about 240 km of Desert highway was inspected to analyze the proposed PMMS.

A visual survey was conducted on the field, condition analysis was done and decisions were executed by Micro PAVER software to determine maintenance needs, budgets, and priorities for present and future conditions.

Desert highway is considered a major rural arterial consisting of two lanes in each direction with heavy traffic.

The selected highway was divided to zone, branch and section.

Sampling procedure was selected randomly as input data required in to Micro PAVER computer software.

The updated Micro PAVER v.7.0.9 software was used for the assessment and prediction of the condition of highway pavement and maintenance cost for existing conditions (year of the study-2019), short-term conditions (2019-2023) and medium-term conditions (2019-2028).

The study shows that the PCI of the existing conditions was rated as (very poor) with 2, 200, 996.

48$ maintenance cost.

The PCI of short-term condition was rated (very poor) with 220, 304, 278.

00$ maintenance cost whereas the PCI of medium-term condition was rated (very poor) with 223, 283, 912.

00$ maintenance cost.

The Desert highway network in Jordan needs to be reconsidered for future maintenance plans to improve the quality of its service.
